    Route Description for Panoramic Point Trail

    Compared to many routes in the Kings Canyon National Park, the Panoramic Point Trail boasts a tranquil experience, notably in the early morning and late evenings. For the best views head out on a clear day to appreciate the grandeur of the mountainous landscape. Note entrance to the park costs $35USD per vehicle or $20USD per person for pedestrians or cyclists.

    Setting out from the Park Ridge Trailhead, the Panoramic Point Hike travels southeastwardly, gradually climbing through the mixed woodlands. Soon after your departure from the trailhead you will encounter an intersection, keep left here. This section of the path will redirect you northeast before curving south and climbing up to the overlook. Admire the panoramic views from Panoramic Point, then continue south to the following junction.

    At this point, you will want to turn right and the Park Ridge Trail will lead you back down the ridge. Soon you will reconnect with the initial segment of trail—retrace your steps along this route back to the trailhead.

    Getting to the Panoramic Point Trail Trailhead
